2012 Readers’ Choice Awards: Best Bed & Breakfast
Glass on Glasshouse
For the second year running, Glass on Glasshouse came out on top as Australia’s best bed and breakfast.
Tucked away by Queensland’s picturesque Glasshouse Mountains, this stylish, contemporary hideaway features floor-to-ceiling glass windows for spectacular views of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, so guests can experience nature up close, even when indoors.
These sleek pavilions offer understated luxury and a sense of seclusion, while being just six kilometres from the nearest town.
But with a dramatic freestanding double spa bath at your disposal, as well as a double-sided fireplace, luscious king-sized bedroom, breathtaking views of native wildlife, not to mention a delectable breakfast basket each morning, we doubt you’ll want to venture anywhere else. glassonglasshouse.com.au
